Mercury FX CEO: We are sending tens of thousands of dollars weekly through xRapid
By Tim Copeland Cryptocurrencies?4 min read?Mar 20, 2019Mar 20, 2019 What do Mexico, the Philippines and Sub-Saharan Africa have in common? They?re all notoriously difficult and expensive to send money into and out of. This is the market that Ripple aims to crack with its suite of blockchain-based tools for cross-border payments. One of these services is called xRapid and it uses XRP?the third largest cryptocurrency by market cap?as means of exchange. With cryptocurrency, payment can happen much faster and much cheaper than using the traditional payment system. One company using the xRapid service is Mercury FX, and it?s already in use.

A Massive Bet on Blockchain and Gaming: Ripple and Forte Announce $100 Million Fund
The cryptocurrency company Ripple on Tuesday announced an ambitious project to integrate blockchain technology into video games. The plan, which features a $100 million fund for developers, could remake the gaming industry by creating a new way to create in-game marketplaces for digital goods. The fund will be overseen by Forte, a San Francisco company founded this year by prominent gaming executives, and which is backed and advised by a host of big Silicon Valley names, including Andreesen Horowitz, Coinbase Ventures and Battery Ventures. ?Video games have long been quick to adopt new technology, from console to the PC to mobile. Now, blockchain will help game designers who?ve had a hard time facilitating an economy that can serve all types of players,? said Ethan Beard, a senior executive with Ripple?s development arm Xpring, in an interview with Fortune.

Switzerland?s primary stock exchange SIX could soon list another cryptocurrency-based exchange-traded product (ETP), which will track the price of XRP, the third largest crypto asset by market capitalization. Hany Rashwan, co-founder and CEO of the Swiss company Amun AG ? which already offers several crypto ETPs ? told CoinDesk in an interview that his firm has received approval from SIX to issue the XRP-linked ETP with the ticker name AXRP, adding: ?We can comfortably say that we expect to release the world?s first XRP ETP within the next two months.? Besides XRP, Rashwan said that Amun has also obtained clearance to issue ETPs linked to four more single crypto assets, including bitcoin cash (BCH), litecoin (LTC), stellar lumens (XLM) and EOS.

I am not anti Ripple/XRP. But niether r/XRP or r/ripple will post this article... That worries me.
In my recent article on JPM Coin, JPMorgan Chase ?s prototype digital token, I casually mentioned that there are ?indications that Ripple is essentially a scam.? I had no idea the can of worms I was opening. At least a dozen articles popped up in the cryptosphere questioning my sources ? and perhaps my sanity ? in languages as varied as Japanese, Spanish, and even Turkish. Needless to say, I had to dig deeper ? and what I found out about Ripple was chilling. Peeling Back the Layers of the Ripple Business Model At its core, the Ripple business model is a pump and dump scheme, as it undergoes numerous activities to increase the value of the XRP cryptocurrency (crypto). Unlike most crypto pump and dumps, however, Ripple takes numerous steps to obscure this basic fact. This post was obtained by us on March 01, 2019 9:25 PM. Visit www.forbes.com for more.

SWIFT is not using XRP on Corda Settler, says R3 founder
By Tim Copeland Cryptocurrency?2 min read?Feb 28, 2019Feb 28, 2019 When global payments organizer SWIFT partnered with blockchain consortium R3, many predicted Ripple, a company hoping to build a rival to SWIFT, would have taken a knock. Instead, the price of XRP?which Ripple?s products are centered around?jumped 10 percent. But why? Well, it turns out R3 and Ripple are closer than many thought. In December 2018, R3 announced it was adding XRP as the first digital currency on its Corda settler platform as part of its deal with SWIFT. This led to speculation that SWIFT was going to be using XRP to carry out payment settlements. The rumor mill, going into a bit of a frenzy, then said that 50 banks would be using XRP. But is any of it true? This publication was retrieved by us on February 28, 2019 9:46 AM. Visit decryptmedia.com to find more similar content.

Did Insiders Trade XRP Before the Coinbase Listing
XRP was trading up at approximately 7 percent 15 minutes after the announcement, proving once again that Coinbase listings have a material effect on the price of a cryptocurrency. What was less expected was the small rally in the hours leading up to the announcement, which may indicate insider accumulation. Coinbase announced on Feb. 25th that they would be adding XRP as a tradeable asset on Coinbase Pro, following years of speculation from XRP supporters and the broader market that it would eventually be listed. Examining the charts leading up to the tweet, does, in fact, seem to suggest that there was significant accumulation from insiders with information about the upcoming announcement.

back when the xrp account reserve was 200 xrp
Up until now Bitcoin has been, by far, the most powerful contender in the cryptocurrency market. Other alternative coins, such as Namecoin, Solidcoin and Litecoin, have arisen to offer various modifications on the core Bitcoin concept but, despite over a year?s worth of development and dozens of attempts, none have achieved anything close to Bitcoin?s level of success. Litecoin is perhaps the most prominent out of all the alternatives, its price hovering around $0.07 USD and even slowly increasing over the past six months, but so far the overwhelming majority of merchants ? and merchant platforms, for that matter ? have seen no reason to pay attention to them. Now, that may finally change with decentralized cryptocurrency?s new kid on the block: Ripple. This article was retrieved by us on February 24, 2019 10:26 PM.

SBI CEO Believes XRP Will Rule Them All
Now according to the Daily HODL, the CEO of SBI Holdings, Yoshitaka Kitao, is keen to increase and boost the adoption of Ripple?s payment solutions and propel XRP, so it dominates the cryptocurrency market. In a recent interview with Coin post, a Cryptocurrency news company, Kitao noted that Ripple and XRP will help kickstart the overall crypto market. He even mentioned that: ?Practical use for international remittances using distributed ledger technology (DLT) including Ripple?s digital asset, is getting widespread, and already big overseas companies like Santander and other banks are actually beginning to move. The major money mobility providers are also starting to introduce the use of xRapid, which uses XRP, and the number of companies participating in RippleNet is increasing substantially.? This is fantastic news and no new surprise when it comes to Ripple and the XRP token. Ripple has been expanding fast and aggressively with over 200 companies in its network for cross-border transactions. Now Kitao argues that XRP has a clear use and purpose unlike that of Bitcoin which is still searching for its primary use case. He even argued that there is no value for Bitcoin and that Bitcoin?s current price makes it difficult to use in everyday practical situations. And it?s for these reasons that he believes XRP will reign as the number one cryptocurrency asset. So what are my thoughts on all this? I?m definitely bullish and keen to see Ripple succeed and for the XRP token to perform well, however, unlike Kitao?s approach I don?t believe that it?s one coin to rule them all market. I don?t think it?s going to be whether Bitcoin succeeds or Ripple succeeds, but I see a future where there is space for multiple currencies. Each one can dominate a specific niche as it provides a specific purpose. Bitcoin may become the next global Reserve, whereas XRP can be used to settle transactions fast and efficiently. What are your thoughts on this situation guys? Do you think XRP will be the token to rule them all? Or do you think there?s space for multiple players in the market? Let me know what you guys think in the comments below. It?s Cindy with CryptoPig, Catch you guys around!
